  My research deals with experimental nuclear physics, whereby I try to disentangle the fundamental forces that act in the atomic nucleus by studying nuclei under extreme conditions. Such exotic nuclei are all man-made at accelerators and need to be created in our experiemnts for detailed studies by applying different methods. It is a combination of techniques from nuclear physics (nuclear reactions and decay, ion sources, accelerators, beam manipulation, detectors) and from atomic physics (lasers)  that makes this research so challenging and interesting.  My main areas of the present interest are:

  • Shape coexistence, particle and gamma decay
  • Laser-assisted nuclear decay studies, charge radii measurements
  • Fission and Beta-delayed fission
  • Transfer and Coulex reactions
  • Atomic structure studies with radioactive beams
